Anyone actually get a call back after applying? My goodness! I have applied for so many Attendent jobs and not once call back. I even applied for a job in laundry (It makes more then the group home I... Read More

    My manager said last week that their is a freeze. Oh, and for added fun the company that evaluates all the lines is back. More changes are acoming.

    The way she said it, was that posted positions will be filled with existing staff. So casuals getting hired for lines because they are in the system?

    Who knows.

    They cannot arbitrarily increase anyone's FTE. They can't force casuals to take positions. I've seen the evilness they've inflicted on our master rotation through that centralized evaluation process. The local is still "working with them" to fix them so that they're collective-agreement-compliant but that doesn't mean they'll be workable. The line I have right now is brutal and the new one doesn't look any better. As a 0.7 I shouldn't be working nine 12-hour shifts in a two week period... ever - never mind bouncing from nights to days to nights to days and back to nights over those nine shifts. Who can work that kind of schedule?

    In the northern areas is housing subsidized through your work or is it all private apts?
    It depends where you are in the North. Many of the apts are not subsidized through work, but some areas provide a Northern allowance. My area did not until recently, and even with incentives, we still can't get staff.

    Most places overwork their staff. This is one of the key reasons I'm leaving my position, even though it is not an ideal time. I'd rather take my chances and find a casual job somewhere than work the 15-16 shifts a month many of us have been working for the last 6 months. All the hours are slowly sucking the life right out of most of us, with no end in sight. And 9 shifts in two weeks is too much.

    Hi! I am an IEN who wants to apply at AHS. Is there a possibility for an IENs to be hired as Nursing Attendant at AHS or do we need to have a certificate as Nursing Attendant before we can apply?

    Have you been reading these threads on AHS? There's an informal hiring freeze! But in answer to your last question, AHS does require certification for nursing assistants. Last year every non-certified NA in the province was required to take a course and become certified to keep their jobs - even those who have been doing that job for 30 years.

    I've just heard that they are only hiring internal applicants for UNE positions right now (U of A, not sure about other sites), so good luck to anyone that is not already working for AHS

    Our hospital here in the north east rural Alberta is looking for RN's. They've had posting after postings but have had no luck.

    Rural areas are always short and always hiring. There is no draw for people to move to rural areas. I'm looking to move, even if that means working less in a city. We have had positions open for 7 months with no success. AHS needs to either step up the marketing of rural areas or start hiring contract nurses again.

    Oh I see... I'm just confuse because until now they keep on posting jobs in their website. Thanks!

    They have to post vacancies for existing positions - that's a clause in all of the collective agreements they have with the different unions (UNA, AUPE, CUPE, HSAA). BUT... there's nothing in any of the contracts that says they have to FILL the postings. And they aren't filling a lot of them. They're stretching the staff they already have. My unit runs on overtime. There are very few shifts where we don't have at least a couple of people on OT, sometimes 6 or 7 and we're still working short.
